Ownership & Staff

"I bought bare land and created the vineyard from scratch, caring for it with my own hands…"

Juan Nevarez has been an essential part of the growth in the reputation of Paso Robles wines and has twice been recognized as Grower of the Year in the region. As the founding vineyard manager for the famous Justin Estate Vineyard, Juan built his reputation on honesty, hard work and most importantly, the knowledge of grapes. Juan and his staff have been a part of the success at Carmody McKnight, Wilde Horse Winery and others. His skills, experience and reputation have placed his grapes (and his staff) in high demand throughout the region and have made him a fixture in the Paso Robles community for over 25 years.
